    mondeo calipers on to mk2

    was thinking of going for mondeo front calipers on the mk2 & getting the caprisport 280 fitting kit.
    will this be ok with a bias pedal box and mk3 fiesta calipers on my rear axle???
    cheers

    Re: mondeo calipers on to mk2

    Works fine on my rally car,

    Front = 260mm disks, Mondeo front caliper with mintex 1155 pads, 0.675 master cylinder.
    Rear = 260mm disks, mk4 fiesta front calipers with standard autofactors pads, 0.750 master cylinder

    There is plenty bias adjustment either way, my only complaint is that the pedal travel is a little long, i could probably fix this by fitting a larger front master cylinder, but the way it is i have loads of "feel", and fook me the car stops quickly!

    People are quick to dismiss sliding calipers in favor of 4 pots, but if you do the maths the mondeo caliper has greater clamping force than an AP 4 pot....
